2014 Book Goals

July 7, 2014

It's not a big secret that I don't have a lot of time on my hands.  I keep seeing books that I want to read, or getting suggestions from friends or bloggers.  Nadine is always reading and telling me about her books, and other Nadine just posted this post about books she has recently been reading.  (with all the school work I have, you wouldn't think I would want to read for leisure.  but I do.)

Over the weekend at Target, I decided I was going to buy two books-  actual, paper books- in preparation for the honeymoon.  Yes, it's still 3 months away, but whatever.  These two have been on my list and if it weren't for ALL the other books I've bought and downloaded to my iBooks/Kindle app, I doubt I could wait to read them.  So I decided, that with all of the books I have just waiting to be read, I am going to make a goal for the rest of 2014 to finish them.  I'm not going to add any books until I finish all of these, so I think it will be pretty fun.

I know that Kay had previously done a Blogger Book Club that is no longer going on, but I love that idea.  It doesn't have to be formal, but if you'd like to read along with me, I'd love to discuss a book with you!  Just be warned... I can't be held to any timelines with my school schedule.  I just love to read.

SO.  With that being said, I am going to post this here and in a link on my NavBar so whoever wants can keep up with it.


+Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
+ The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks


+The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
+Graduates in Wonderland by Jessica Pan & Rachel Kapelke-Dale
+The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith 
(aka J.K. Rowling using a pen name)
+Looking for Alaska by John Green
+Paper Towns by John Green
+The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
+Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
+If I Stay by Gayle Forman
+My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
+Four Divergent Stories by Veronica Roth
In case you are asking yourself, the answer is YES:  those are all books I have purchased and downloaded on my iPad but never read.  So here at the busiest point of my year, school in full force and 90 days until the wedding, I will just go ahead and set a book goal list as well.
What are you currently reading?


  1. Love this! I'm not currently reading anything. I go through stages where I'm reading all the time, then not so much. But, I will definitely check out your list and might just join you on some of them.

  2. I love this post! I have read several of the books on your "to read" list - I really loved the Divergent Series and anything by John Green is amazing. I highly recommend "Brain on Fire: my month of madness" by Susannah Calahan, "Her Fearful Symmetry" and "The Time Travellers Wife" both by Audrey Niffenegger :) xo

  3. Nicholas Sparks books get the best of me every time. I just can't not read them.


  4. I can't wait to read The Cuckoo's Calling! It's on my August list--I have a lot to finish now!

  5. There's a few on your list that I want to check out. Right now I am re-reading the Harry Potter series. But, I agree with Hope about The Time Travelers Wife, so good.

  6. You already know how I feel about a few of these books on your list! You can't go wrong with Nicholas Sparks. Hopefully you will get a chance to read a few of these!

  7. Nicholas Sparks - His new book is called The Longest Ride? Should I shut up now? yep
